Remember the vintage picnic case birthday present that I brought a few weeks ago, which was missing a cup? Well, I've managed to find a matching trio on eBay, so I can now replace the cup and my friend will have a spare plate and saucer.
I haven't found any charity shop or boot sale buys to show you this week, but what I have been up to is making Monkeychild a summer dress and top from a free online Oliver + S pattern.
I used some 1970s printed cotton that I brough at a boot sale last year, for the dress on the left and found some plain bright pink cotton in my fabric stash. The only new haberdashery I had to buy was a couple of metres of lilac ric-rac and two strawberry buttons.
I made the top out of two vintage 'Dorma' pillowcases that were jumble sale finds. It reminds me of the dresses that Mum used to make for me in the '70s and is the nearest to vintage that I can find for Monkeychild, as unfortunately Mum gave all my clothes away to friends and family when I outgrew them.
